AMD today announced a new operating model that centers the organization on four equally critical functions: products, technology, marketing and customers.
"We are tightening our focus on delivering the winning products and platforms our customers want based on AMD?s industry-leading microprocessor and graphics technologies," said Dirk Meyer, AMD president and CEO. "The next generation of innovation in the computing industry will be grounded in the fusion of microprocessor and graphics technologies. With these changes, we are putting the right organization in place to help enable the future of computing."
Meyer organized the company around these four operating teams. The products group will be responsible for delivering all of AMD?s platforms and products and aligning the graphics and microprocessor product development groups into a single unified organization. An Advanced Technology Group will focus on developing AMD?s future technology innovation. Finally there will be a marketing and a sales (customer) group.
